Sweet, simple, and delicious, Double Strawberry Sugar Cookies. Soft and chewy strawberry cookies with both strawberry jam and dried strawberries for double the strawberry flavor. Each light pink berry-filled cookie is lightly iced with a cream cheese strawberry icing. These cookies do not disappoint. Each sweet bite is perfectly chewy, layered with fresh berries, and topped with a deliciously creamy icing – so good!

It’s strawberry cookie day here at HBH today!! It’s a good ole’ happy kind of day! I know that’s a little cheesy, but just looking at these light pink cookies makes me a little happier. They’re so fun!

I’ve been looking forward to writing and sharing these cookies since I made them last week. I love them, they’re easy, cute, soft, chewy, and oh-so-yummy. Plus, they’re fun for springtime and Easter too!

My energy is obviously up today and I blame these cookies. It’s not all the time that recipes turn out naturally cute without any added effort! So we just love that!

Just like last year, and the year before, March brings me some much-needed inspiration recipe-wise. It’s the start of spring. We have St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, and then Easter and Mother’s Day too.

All are fun events that center around food! With spring coming up, strawberry is at the top of my mind. I LOVED my strawberry cupcakes from last year so much, I wondered how I could turn the flavors into a cookie.

My very first attempt at these worked beautifully. That almost never happens ya’ll. Again, we ALL really love these cookies, and I’m pretty sure you’ll love them too. Plus hopefully, you’ll also have fun making them!

Details, details

I knew I wanted these to be easy, but also to have incredible strawberry flavor – and REAL strawberry flavor. So many strawberry desserts have everything but real strawberries.

Like my cupcakes, I used strawberry jam and freeze-dried strawberries in these cookies. The first step is to blend the dried strawberries into a fine powder. You can do this in a food processor or blender. You’ll use the strawberry powder in both the cookies and the icing.

The rest is so simple. If you’ve made a basic cookie, you’ve got these covered.

Beat the butter with sugar, then drop in an egg and some vanilla extract. Next, mix in the flour, baking soda, some of that strawberry powder, and a little salt too. Next, add in high-quality strawberry jam. I like to use a thick jam, which I would recommend you use as well. The one I used was sent to me (sorry, I forget the name!). I love that it has no added sugars, just strawberry puree (I’ll try to figure out the name).

Mix, mix, mix and you have strawberry sugar cookie dough. Nothing to it.

Bake them into drop cookies, which means you simply scoop, drop, and bake.

For the icing, mix cream cheese with sweet sugar, more of that strawberry powder, and vanilla.

You don’t have to make the icing, the cookies are wonderful on their own. But the icing makes these cookies REALLY good. I definitely recommend it.

Lightly dip the cookies into the icing and now you’re totally done. Well, I also recommend decorating with a sprinkle of strawberry powder.

So freaking cute and fun! Perfect cookies to bake for both spring and summer, and especially for upcoming Easter and Mother’s Day. They’re pretty hard not to love!

Instructions

  • 1. In a blender or food processor, process the freeze-dried strawberries into a fine powder.
    2. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar, and vanilla until combined. Beat in the egg. Add the flour, baking soda, 1/4 cup strawberry powder (save the remainder for the frosting), and salt. Beat in the strawberry jam.
    4. Roll the dough into rounded tablespoon size balls and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from the oven, rotate, and tap the baking sheet on the counter 1 time to flatten. Bake another 2-3 minutes or until the cookies are just beginning to set on the edges. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet. They will continue to cook slightly as they sit on the baking sheet.
    5. To make the icing, mix all ingredients in a bowl with 3-4 tablespoons strawberry powder. Add additional milk to thin, as needed.
    6. If desired, dip each cookie in the icing. Let set or enjoy! These are wonderful – iced or not! Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

    I had the opposite problems of what I’ve read in other reviews haha firstly, my cookies barely spread at all. The only alteration was that I used vanilla powder instead of extract. It’s such a small amount I’d be surprised if that’s the issue but maybe.

    I had to take the cookies out much earlier in the baking process to tap them down. The first pan I followed directions and they were too set to crinkle. The second pan tapped down better but then I didn’t bake long enough so they stayed kind of mushy (I panicked about the “remove them just as the edges set bit”). The last pan did the best but I’d still bake a bit longer.

    For the icing, my gut told me to leave out the cream cheese since it’s designed to stay soft in the fridge and all that, and the icing was perfect. It hardened perfectly and looks my last pan of cookies look like the pictures.

    Now that I think I’ve got my kinks worked out, I want to bake them again. The flavor is absolutely amazing and I love the icing.

    1. Oh, and both Target and WalMart sell freeze dried strawberries in their dried fruit sections. I only needed one bag to get the amount needed for the recipe!

    2. Hey Meredith,
      Happy Friday!! I love to hear that you enjoyed these cookies, thanks so much for making them and sharing what worked well for you! xT
